MPI Brokers bring you more...

We are constantly searching for new and innovative solutions and ideas that we can recommend and pass on to our clients. Summarised below are a few, which we encourage you to view, in particular EHIC.

Insurance at the ready for expected growth in sailing

British sailors’ performance in the Olympics, Paralympics and major events such as the Americas Cup will generate fresh interest in sailing – and increase demand for insurance tailored to this branch of water sports. So says Michael Pettifer, Managing Director of MPI Brokers, specialist provider of travel insurance suited to both sailing and skiing. “We have seen considerable growth in our summer business since the 2012 Olympics and the excellent results from Rio and elsewhere will undoubtedly add impetus to the trend. “I am delighted that MPI is participating in the Southampton Boat Show again this year, alongside Sailing Holidays,” he says. “It is the premier showcase for all forms of boating and it fosters the nation’s great sailing spirit. It also enables us to strengthen many contacts across the industry and with the public.” An experienced sailor and skier, Michael Pettifer provides policies that give customers greater freedom to enjoy their chosen activities. “For example, most tourist travel insurance policies do not cover racing: we do – for dinghy racing and low-level ski racing,” he says. And MPI covers all forms of sailing in all Western European waters and up to 12 nautical miles offshore elsewhere. Insurance for further afield is arranged on application. MPI is a long-standing sponsor of the annual Schools Week at Itchenor Sailing Club and this year, for the first time, also sponsored Junior Week at nearby Bosham Sailing Club. Additionally, MPI sponsors Team Thompson Sailing – a family of four Surrey brothers, three of whom are already showing promise nationally and internationally in the 420 and RS Tera classes.

MPI CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

  • I recevied the completed claim and cheque in the post today - thank you very much for all of your help with this, it was extremely efficient from your end despite my lack of organisation!

  • Very many thanks for all your excellent help this afternoon it was much appreciated and I will be in touch.

    Again a BIG thank you for your time and patience.

  • Thanks Marta - he is thank you - bruised and sore but has finished injections. He just needs to rest .

    Can I just say your company has been amazing- I have already recommended you! 

    Kind regards 

  • You have saved me a one-day return trip to the UK so for that I (and the environment!) will be forever grateful. Thanks again for being so awesome - it does seem ludicrous to have such rigid rules when it so easy for these things to happen and punish those who want to pay for insurance/ be adequately covered. This is most certainly a common sense approach which should stand you in good stead. Wishing you the best for 2016

  • Dear Peter,

    Thank you very much for organising my return.  The journey home was very pleasant and well organised.

  • Excellent service, first time I have ever had to apply for a claim, so I have nothing to compare this service with, however I have heard horror stories about insurance claims. My first experience was quick, hassle free, no complications what so ever very impressed with service.

  • Everything and I mean everything you guys did was brilliant. If I had not already paid for my insurance for my next trip I would be using you. Cannot praise your product or your service enough.

  • The reason I chose MPI brokers for the travel insurance policy to cover my recent extended trip to France was twofold. Firstly, the policy cover was exactly right for winter sports and secondly because I might extend the trip this could be actioned whilst I was still abroad.

    I am pleased to say I thought your service was excellent in both respects even though fortunately I am not making any claims.

    In particular, I would like to compliment Joanne and Catherine who helped me on the phone from France extend the cover. The last thing you want as a customer on the phone from abroad is hassle trying to sort this out. Both Joanne and Catherine were first class in the way they handled my requirements then and there on the phone. Well done.

    Could you please pass on my comments to your manager...

  • These are the bare facts and relate to Edward and our interface with him.  This was important to us and was only made possible by the superb service provided by the insurance company...

    They dealt directly with the ski recovery team, the hospital and made all the arrangements for Ed's return.

    Not only did they perform the functional side without fault but they provided constant support to Celia.  Her mind was constantly at ease and allowed her the freedom to worry about Edward's recovery.

    I would like to offer an unreserved note of gratitude to Jill, Bob and Renee who over the Christmas break gave up their time to help us.  They provided rays of hope in what was a dark mire of unknown.  potential confusion and uncertainty were replaced by confidence and care.  Although there must have been other issues we always felt that Edward was No 1 and there was a team dedicated to Edward and his well being.

    Thank you all.

  • Thank you so much - i couldn't have asked for better service from you. Some companies can be a complete nightmare! I'm very grateful. If there's any feedback or survey I can fill out please don't hesitate to ask me to do so. I'd be glad to.

  • After much searching amongst other options, I eventually spoke to Catherine at MPI for my elderly lady ski insurance!!! She was excellent - so I have gone with MPI. Thanks for your help with the information.

  • We don't know how to say thank you and your colleagues enough for all your efforts to get Sam home safely.

    He is home now and although his legs look very messed up he is in good heart. His wounds are infected and his ankle does not look brilliant so I know we did the right thing having him repatriated.  It was a very stressful time for all of us but your cheery voice at the end of the line always helped. I am particularly grateful that you asked your representative doctor in Peru to translate the Spanish doctor's letter into English. I know you had to pull him out of the shower to do this (!) but if you hadn't I think Sam would still be there! You organised a driver to bring him back from the airport in an extra long car so that he could extend his legs and that was really helpful too. You were brilliant in every way - so thank you from all of us.

  • I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your team for all your help with my claim. You made what was initially a very stressful experience much easier, and my parents and I really appreciate it.

    I am so glad that I took out my insurance with MPI and would not hesitate to urge people to get insurance before going on a ski season. Obviously in an ideal world, I wouldn't have had to claim but I did and accidents do happen. My mum is an insurance agent herself and has been really impressed with your customer service.

  • The empathy shown to my initial treatment was much appreciated and I wish to take this opportunity of thanking you for your total support and eventual satisfactory outcome of this claim.

    In kind appreciation...
